[fourth reading in February, 2018—revised rating to 5 stars]

[third reading in October, 2015]

[read for the second time in March/April, 2014]

[May 21, 2011] Well, when I finished The Wreath, I wasn't at all sure I cared to continue with the trilogy...but as the weeks went on, guess what I couldn't stop thinking about? Kristin Lavransdatter. So I gave the second book a try, and what a difference a translation can make! Tiina Nunnally's recent version is far superior to the one I'd read before. As well, I think Kristin's character as an adult wife and mother is just a lot more interesting than the lovelorn teenager. I loved this book's beautiful descriptions of Norway, the un-romanticized medieval setting, the honest and believable highs and lows of married life and Christian faith. The political intrigue was the only part I had a hard time getting into. On the whole, so good. ( )

"Are you so arrogant that you think yourself capable of sinning so badly that God’s mercy is not great enough?"


Book 2 deals with Kristin's marriage, and as I suspected, there is trouble in paradise. Kristin is haunted by her sins, and this guilt consumes her. Even when the priests, including her brother-in-law, Gunnulf, advise her not to focus on her sins so much, but to live her life doing good. Still, Kristin struggles with trusting in God's mercy. It's heartbreaking because I'd like to see her experience the peace thatvtge Catholic Church is offering her, but she just can't get over her guilt. She makes a pilgrimage and gives her bridal wreath as penance, and after this she is able to move on for a time. She and Erland experience many struggles in their marriage. Kristin is consumed with guilt. Erland doesn't understand this. He doesn't take his sins very seriously. Kristin is a good steward of of their household and properties. Erland is wasteful and let's his properties fall to ruin. Kristin is obsessed with her seven sons. Erland doesn't want much to do with them. These and many other differences between them cause serious rifts in their marriage as neither of them is very good at communication and compromise. Kristin's guilt festers into a hatred of Erland. She takes everything out on him, and even her father and her brother-in-law, Simon, rebuke her over this. Erland resents Kristin for her "holiness". Despite her resentment of him, he sees so much goodness in her that it pricks his conscience, and makes him feel worse about his own sinfulness. This harkens back to the first book, where Brother Edvin points out that once people sin, they have a tendency to delight in others sins, because it makes them feel better about themselves. Erland cheats on Kristin, and this exposes his plot against the king. He is convicted of treason, and sentenced to death. Only then does Kristin let go of her hatred for Erland. Simon helps them, and gets the king to pardon Erland. At the end of the book it is revealed that Simon still loves Kristin, his sister-in-law and ex-fiance. This book is more political than the first and it's a bit difficult to keep track of all the political history of Norway at that time, so it was a slower read for me than the first book, but it was still very good and worth the read. Oddly enough, I sympathized with Simon the most, and I'd like to see more of him in Book 3.

This second book in the Kristin Lavransdatter trilogy sees Kristin mature from a young bride into a capable wife and mother. First, she needs to come to terms with rash decisions made in her youth: not only did she insist on choosing her own husband, but she gave in to desire and became pregnant before marriage. After becoming a parent, Kristin begins to appreciate the emotional and social impact of her impetuous behavior on her parents, who nevertheless love her unconditionally. Second, Kristin realizes her husband Erlend may be a fine lover, but he is ineffective at managing his property and not very attentive as a father.

With her father as role model, Kristin steps up to managing the estate. Erlend’s work takes him to the furthest reaches of the country, and he becomes involved in some controversial political activity. Eventually he does something stupid that threatens the family at its core. Kristin’s former fiancé, Simon, proves himself to be the all-around good guy by intervening on their behalf and salvaging as much of the situation as he can. And with that, I know it won’t be long before I read the final volume in this trilogy. ( )

The best novel written in the twentieth century. Seriously.

Läste just att Kristin Lavransdotter är en av världens bästa kärleksromaner. Tycker att det är en av världens bästa romaner. Kände mig helt enkelt lycklig efter läsningen. (Antagligen tillkommer översättaren Teresia Eulén en del av berömmet.) EWn helt fantastisk berättelse om liv och död, kärlek och brist på förståelse, om vardagsliv, klyftor, tro och vidskepelsen i 1300-talets Norge. Önskar att jag hade läst den tidigare! ( )
